The Meerkat is a deft, sleek ride. Front and rear rack mounts and horizontal dropouts with a derailleur hanger offer unparalleled versatility. Internally geared 5-speed hub is impervious to the rigors your elementary schooler will subject it to. It will shift smoothly for thousands of miles. Sealed hydraulic disc brakes stop surely every time. Fit Meerkat best fit for riders with an inseam of 22" to 26". The Meerkat has a low bottom bracket height, which allows a rider with a 22" inseam to comfortably start out on the Meerkat. The seat tube angle on the Meerkat allows the bike fit to grow along with the rider. The seat moves up and back as you increase saddle height, so even a 5’ tall rider will fit the bike well.
Meerkats can do a lot of things, including musically advising lions, hiding in holes, and barking at predators. Cleary's Meerkat 24-inch bike cannot do any of these things. What it does offer your two-wheeling youngster is an easy-shifting 5-speed drivetrain and a smooth, lively ride thanks to its aluminum frame. This sweet ride's frame geometry delivers an equal spread of weight between the rider's hands and seat, making the bike as stable and agile as possible. Front and rear hydraulic disc brakes ensure proper stopping ability even in wet conditions.
